Border Ghosts Reading & Signing

Deputy Ricos’ Tale, "Border Ghosts" won "Best Crime Novel of the Year" from the Texas Authors Association!

Deputy Margarita Ricos’ is not like every other deputy sheriff. She’s young. She’s tough. She’s kindhearted and smart.  She’s a proud Chicana! Raised on the edge of the United States in Terlingua, Texas, she has a broad perspective of “the border,” its people, and its issues. 

Margarita is an advocate of justice and fairness in a world that is neither. She takes comfort in the steadfastness of the scenery she adores and her love for and commitment to her community. “Border Ghosts” is the fourth installment in the Deputy Ricos’ series.  Margarita jumps at the chance to help her father solve a mystery Dallas Texas.  She’s quickly drawn into a web of lies and cover-ups, angels and villains, wrongs and redemption, past and present.

Elizabeth has a great passion for the outdoors.  She has a degree in Business Administration and Marketing, and has made a living most of her adult life as an entrepreneur.  For 15 years she owned and managed the Big Bend River Tours in the border town of Lajitas, TX. Her biggest influencer is her daughter, Margarita - who served as the inspiration for Deputy Ricos’.
